WeMo Switch – control your appliances remotely

WeMo Switch

If you are a gadget junky like me, and your dream home is a smart one, then this cute little thing is definitely for you. It is called WeMo switch by Belkin and it allows you to control your home appliances remotely.

Basically you plug it into any power outlet in your home and then you plug your appliance into it. WeMo switch connects to your existing WiFi network (we said that you’re a gadget junky, so you must have one at home!) and you can control it with your iPhone or Android device using a free application.

You can control several WeMo switches from the app, and the best thing is – you can do it from any place in the world as long as you have an internet connection!

I can see so many cool uses for this. For example, it is cold now so I wish I could turn on the heater in my bedroom 30 minutes before I get home from work. I can do it with WeMo switch. Or you might want to turn off the night light you leave in your baby’s room without going inside. You can even schedule your lamps to turn on and off when you are on vacation and your house is empty. These are just a few examples that first come to mind and I’m sure there are many more uses for this device.
